“Don't miss out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

Have been here for a couple of time with my family and we love it. It's a nice casual cafe style restaurant (it has indoor and outdoor seating) with tasty food, and not forget to mention about the big portion.

Roasted chicken is perfectly marinated (approx RM40), but not their homemade mashed potato. It would be better if they allow choice of mashed potato or hand cut potato fries on the menu because i would prefer my sirloin steak to come with freshly baked fries.

I was not prepared to give them 4-star but after i had my steak dinner, i am! It's hard to find good chef who can cook perfect steak in Kuching. This restaurant (not a steakhouse doe) serves some serious steak. Ordered well-done sirloin steak (RM45) for the first time, it was perfectly cooked, the burnt is especially flavourful. Had medium well sirloin for the second time, it's kinda disappointed because it looked like it has been overcooked, but it was still tender and juicy. Maybe i should try medium rare next time.

Mix-grilled platter (RM79 small) is huge, come with bacon, sausage, roasted chicken, pork ribs, pork knuckle (couldn't really remember). Sausage is good, by far the best in town. My brother had spaghetti bolognese (RM25) serves with pork meatballs. The dish was perfectly presented and the meatball was the best i ever tasted. But the bolognese sauce is a big no for me, slightly disappointed.

Overall, service is good, nice ambience but not fancy enough for a nice dinner. Casual enough for jeans or shorts. Would suggest more selection of dishes on the menu!

“Oink oink!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

Pork pork and pork. I just loved pork. The servings are huge as well and tender juicy pork, pork and more pork. After a hearty or shall I say porky meal there, the Guinness on the tap completes the day.

Once I had a knuckle which I felt its a little burnt. At the end of the dinner I casually feedback to the owner who not only humbly and graciously accepted the feedback but offered a 10% discount.

“One of the BEST Restaurant in Kuching!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Oinks has varieties of food. We ordered Salad with Almond & Bacon and Mix-Grilled. One of the best salad I have ever had. I love the Mix-Grilled (Pork Knuckle, Bacon, Pork Sausage, Pork Ribs and Chicken served with Mash Potato and Salad). The taste was so good and delicious. I'll definitely will come back if I am in town! However, the staffs should improve their communication skills!

“Nice little porky restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Came here with the family and was pleasantly surprised! Service was fast and efficient. We ordered the mushroom soup, garlic bread, smoked duck salad and the large sampler platter. The food was great, recommend the smoked duck and soup. Wish there was more BBQ spare ribs to go around. I am glad that Oinks exist in Kuching. There's an outside bar area if you are not afraid of mosquitoes.

“Pork galore..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013 via mobile

Lots of pork.. Sausages with everything.. All are foot long sausages.. Ask for spicy sausages and avoid the herbal ones (unless you like a rather bland tasting meaty sausage)..
Ask for the sampler plate and share by two (Three small eaters could share it too).. One liter drinks available for the thirsty especially after a salty meal:)
